The Speech

Hey, remember a couple weeks ago when Vermont senator Bernie Sanders mounted an eight and a half hour filibuster in opposition to the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Creation Act of 2010? That was amazing, wasn't it? Okay, yeah, I know it's not technically a filibuster, since it didn't actually block anything, but still. Everyone I know stopped what they were doing to tune in one way or another to see how far Sanders could go to tell Congress to shove their tax cuts for the ultra-wealthy. If you want a piece of Sander's speech, I have good news for you: Nation Books has announced they're going to publish the entire 510-minute slab of verbiage as a book titled, simply, The Speech. Time to special-order one for myself.
